Microsoft held an imaginatively-named Windows 10 Devices event in New York Oct. 6. While they showed off some impressive new phones, a new Surface and a new Surface laptop, we were most interested in seeing new Hololens stuff.

We were super-impressed with the E3 Minecraft demo and have been salivating for more mind blowingness from the augmented reality helmet.

During today's event, they introduced Project X Ray and for the first time, let us see a wearable 'hologram'.



That's when the robots started bursting through the walls.



As with the Minecraft demo, we find this type of interactivity with the surrounding environment super fascinating.

Unfortunately, it's going to come at a price.

Microsoft set a developer kit price at $3,000, shipping in the first quarter of next year.

Time to start saving pennies.

Take this all with a grain of salt; it's purely rumor, but if it's true we'll be able to dry our collective nerd tears and replace them with delighted, terrified screams as early as next year.

An anonymous industry insider is claiming that Microsoft is trying to buy Silent Hills now that Konami has shut the project down.  If true, the game would become an Xbox One exclusive, and the source claims it could be out as soon as March of next year.  The logic is that the Xbox One is in desperate need of exclusive games, and Microsoft wants to secure a big title in time for E3.  Konami has moved to mobile development, and thus has no need for a property like the Silent Hill series, which they are now in a position to sell for billions of dollars.  Supposedly the PT demo disappeared from the Sony store as a show of good faith in Konami's commitment to the deal.

Can the source be trusted?  This person apparently originally leaked information that the Xbox One would be sold without a Kinect attached during a time in which Microsoft claimed they would never seperate the two.  I wouldn't get your hopes up too high though, it's entirely possible that this is all completely untrue, and even if the intent is there, the deal may not go through.

According to an article in the Washington Post,

Two influential Microsoft shareholders have been pushing the Redmond software giant to abandon what they view as non-essential product lines so that Microsoft can focus on its core strength: selling enterprise software to businesses.

That would probably mean dropping Xbox, Bing, and hardware including the Surface. Bless anyone who gets rid of Bing, but dropping Xbox seems like a terrible idea. What do you think? Should Microsoft focus on selling software to businesses? How long until the iBox? Link to the article in the via below the image
